As local application in the treatment of any puffy or swollen condition of any part, especially of the face or for erysipelas, I use a fifty per cent solution of fluid calendula borated non-alcoholic. The results of this application are superior to those obtained from any other remedy that I have ever used. It is my opinion that those who use iodine, carbolic acid, or any of the harsher remedies which were in vogue a decade or two ago are greatly behind the times.
